    Well, if you were looking for a fair comparison, why not just compare the Tea Party to the OWS? Personally, I only view one of these groups with a radical message outside mainstream current policies while the other group was mainly anti-tax.

    The tea party is a reactionary group. Apples, oranges.



    The Tea Party is definitely reactionary, some people in the Tea Party would like to take the USA back to pre-1964 Civil Rights Act days.

    That is not going to happen.

    I don't understand how wishing to model the country off of it's original design is considered extreme.



    No matter how much some people on the right would like to see the USA go back to the pre-Civil War days that will never happen.

    Wrong.

    Timothy McVeigh was a registered Republican when he lived in Buffalo, New York in the 1980's.

    The Tea Party script was written ages ago only Tea Party members rarely know history. They have the same message as the American Liberty League which was supported and started by the rich. It's quite funny because it was actually supported by both rich Dems and Repubs. Party line didn't matter as much as their extreme hatred for what they viewed as radical FDR policies.

    Don't get me wrong because FDR's policies were radical in that day in age after the roaring twenties. The pendulum had swung to the opposite side of those old policies which was the peak of the Gilded Age.

    So, the pendulum swings again.

    Read a little history-lots of anarchists have been terrorists.
